Objects in Space

  • May 9, 2010
  • by
I have not seen most of Firefly.  Most of what I saw didn't attract me.  The Western Sci-fi combo just didn't turn me on.

But one episode I encountered was really good, Objects In Space.  But it occurred entirely on the ship and the Western motif did not enter into it.

River is acting weird and they are wondering if she is a danger to the crew but a bounty hunter gets on board trying to kidnap River but her psychic powers make that impossible.

  MAL:  What we got here to deal with is the larger issue.  And that larger issue is we got someone on board this ship might be a danger to us.
  It’s not a question of whether we like her… some of us have grown
attached to River…
  Kaylee, I know you have or you’d've spoken up sooner, which by the by you
should have.  I find River pleasant enough myself.  But she does have an
oddness to her, and I ain’t just talking about her proficiency with fire-arms.  Girl
knows things.  Things she shouldn’t.  Things she couldn’t.

  JAYNE: What, are you saying she’s a witch?

  WASH: Yes Jayne, she’s a witch.  She has had congress with the Beast.

  JAYNE: She’s in Congress?

  WASH: How did your brain even learn human speech?  I’m just so curious.

  INARA: =bee=-jway, neen hen =boo-
tee-tyeh= duh =nan=-shung!
[Shut up, you inconsiderate schoolboys!]  This isn’t
a joking matter.  This is about our lives and River’s.

  MAL: Thank you.

  SIMON: She’s deeply intuitive.  It’s true that somehow—

  MAL: I don’t think she’s intuitive, Doctor.  I think she’s a reader.

  ZOE: Psychic?

  WASH: Is that even remotely possible?

  MAL: [to Simon] You tell me.  You been studying what they’ve done to her.

  SIMON: They’ve definitely altered the way she reacts to things, even the way
she perceives… but I’m not…

  WASH: Psychic, though? 
That sounds like something out of science fiction!

  ZOE: You live in a spaceship, dear.

  WASH: So?

  JAYNE:[suddenly more uncomfy]
  Whoa, back up a sec.  Are you saying she really read minds?

  MAL: Or near enough.  Am I alone thinking along those lines?

  BOOK: No.

  JAYNE: Well, I don’t like the idea of someone hearing what I’m thinking.

  INARA: No one likes the idea of hearing what you’re thinking.

I love that: "You live in a spaceship, dear."

We have computers in every home now DEAR.  What are we going to do with them?

Up until about half a year ago or so, I'd managed to avoid Firefly.  Sure I'd heard lots of fans saying great things about it and I was certainly aware of all of the attention Joss Whedon was attracting (brilliant, down-trodden savior of all that is meaningful on TV), but I had this little problem believing any of it.  I'd been enticed into watching a couple of episodes of Buffy and wrote it and Whedon off as trash.  Funny, sometimes high-concept (over the top) trash, …

   I very much enjoyed this series.  The basic premise is that of a dystopian Western in Space, where a totalitarian government has an iron grip on the most developed planets, and the less developed are left to fend for themselves.  These outer worlds are relatively undeveloped and most of the technology seems like a mix of 19th-20th century, and near future technology.  This is a series where horse-riding cowboys with assault rifles and space ships are found in close proximity.  …

review by . May 21, 2010
I would reccommend this to any fans of science fiction as well as fans of Joss Whedon   Firefly is, in 3 words, cowboys in space. And in one word: awesome.   The characters are by far the best part of this series. They are well developed and incredibly rich. Even Jayne, who you love to hate, is always consistently Jayne. We begin to feel like we intimately know these characters and grow to love them. A wonderful series, well worth your time.        …

How did they manage to cross sci fi with westerns, and then do all the swearing in Chinese! Great series. Wish it had lasted longer.

Firefly Frickin' Rocks the Roots of Steampunk
Firefly is quinessential steampunk. Even better, it's western steampunk combined with spacepunk: the wild west- in space!  Firefly presents an elaborate, brassy atmoshpere, packs a punchy script with dark, quirky humor, and pays its dues to classic westerns- shoot outs in the desert, bar fights and gambling. Plus, it's full of powerful female characters, who include an independent (and zen) sex worker, a drop-dead gorgeous leiutenant who can shoot a rifle while leaping sideways through the …
